Big data tools and analytics are increasingly contributing to the increasing popularity of MOOCs. Universities are turning to MOOC providers for large student data analyses.

According to the report, the Global MOOCs market is driven by several factors. One of the major factors that are driving the growth o! f the market is the rising cost of education. Education is an ! importan t aspect for employment in today's world but the rising costs, increasing student loan debts, and declining average pay of graduates have made it difficult for students to receive quality education. As a result, students are opting for MOOCs as these courses are of low cost and provide much better quality of education.
